A Newer, Higher Times


A Newsday column on the revamp of venerable pot journal High Times quotes new publisher (and ex-con) Richard Stratton:

"The High Times sensibility is libertarian ? more than left-wing or right-wing," Stratton [says]. "It's a lifestyle magazine for people who don't think the government should tell them how to live," whether they choose to get high or not.

"It's the whole outlaw attitude," added his editor, Annie Nocenti. "And it's a fundamental part of the American character."
